hello!
1. it is super silky! these wigs are all the highest quality grade of kanekalon and are extremely silky and photograph really nicely: http://sakurawigs.com/bwigs/60cma.jpg

2. Yes, pure white wigs will be in the next shipment assuming this trial run goes well. ^_^

Is there any way we could get a sample of the fibres? We've run across several different incarnations of kanekalon, and there are some we like and some we don't like. I'm very interested, I just want to make sure its what we're looking for before we commit. ^.^

Saeru--I've purchased wigs from zhenna0036 on eBay, and their wigs are also of Japanese Kanekalon fiber. The first wig I got felt like it was made by gods *_*. It was the softest, silkiest wig I've ever felt.

We'd love to get one and see once you've got a color we can use in stock. ^.^ We've been having problems with a lot of wigs lately...they say on the tag that its kanekalon, but the wig is silky to the point that it tangles and is slippery to style. I can see that you've got a wonderful gallery of styled wigs for examples, but we're actually looking for the rougher, more human-hair-like, less silky fibres, as we've noticed that they tend to tangle less and style better.
We'd really love to find a good wig supply company, however, (which is why I'm asking so many questions. ^.^) because lately we haven't been happy with the quality of wigs we're finding available online. They look good in pictures, but when we receive them, they're very thin in the back and they tangle quickly...the fibres just aren't right. I'd love to purchase one now, but currently we don't have need for a blue or pink colored wig, so I'll wait and see whats in your next run. ^.^ I'm looking forward to it.

Hello! There's actually 13 colours available, the pink and the blue are just the ones I used to model the style ^_^ Keep scrolling down on the webpage to see the rest of the colours ^o^

Do you have any photos of the unstyled wigs from the top or the back? Since they're thinner, I'd like to see how much of the cap shows.

Hello! They aren't "thin" wigs, none of the cap/netting shows through, they just aren't as heavy as the thicker wigs from CosWorx, such as the Ashley model--that one is very thick. The thickness of these ones are about the same as Godiva's and Amanda's.

So what brand name are these wigs? Do you think you could take a photo of the inside of the wig like Amphigory

Does the B05 color have any green tones in it, or is it a pure blue? I'm looking for a light aqua wig. If this color is just pure light blue, would you be getting any blue-green wigs in stock in the next shipment?

This looks like a lovely and versatile style, nearly perfect for what I need.

There is no "brand" for these wigs yet. If they were to get branded the price would probably double, this is the reason why I can offer these wigs at really low prices.

I have attached a photo of the inside of the wig. The cap design is pretty standard.

Hello!
The B05 colour is a mix of light aqua and light blue. Please see the attachment for an additional sample photo of B05. ^__^

It's hard to say right now, but we might get some more blue/green mixes, but not for a few months.

It's a very pretty color, but it's still too blue. Luckily I won't be needing a wig for quite a while, so I can wait! ^_^ Thank you for posting the picture!

I tried to buy one, but I can't get the PayPal 'Notes" section to appear. Once I log into PayPal after clicking your "Buy Now" button, it only gives me the option of changing my address, changing my funding, or just hitting the Pay button. No notes.
Not sure what I should do here. Suggestions?
